Keeping with low budget should I buy a performer intake that would fit my quadra-jet carb and just sell my RPM intake? Or would the money be spent better on a new carb and use the RPM intake?
The performer rpm will work good for 400. It is a good flowing manifold but the 400 will make use of it. Why not just buy a edelbrock carb they are cheap and easy to work on. Qjet is good to but since you already have an edel manifold why not go with carb or holley. No one ever says i hate my holley 750 double pumper. The same cant be said for qjets.
